Transgender activist responsible for GA name change law has died

COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF) – The transgender man from Columbia County responsible for a Georgia name change law has died.

Rowan Feldhaus died Tuesday from complications after surgery.

A Georgia appeals court ruled in January that Feldhaus could change his name from Rebeccah to Rowan.

LGBT nonprofit Lambda Legal represented him in that case.

A farewell wand ceremony for Rowan will take place Monday, May 22nd, at the teardrop on the Augusta University Summerville campus at 8 p.m.
